If you are looking for a puppy, something that you might want to consider is the look of the breed. Many people often look for dogs with the fluffiest coats.

The Pomeranian is a very fluffy breed of dog

Next up on our list, we have the Pomeranian. These little handbag dogs are known for their looks. They are quite small and great when it comes to living in an apartment or a smaller house. They don’t need much exercise, but a good walk will do them good.

Pomeranians typically have long fur and they shed a lot however it is not unusual for them to be trimmed and groomed regularly. Pomeranians are descendants of livestock breeds and have wolf-like features.

if you choose to be the parent of a little Pomeranian pup, make sure that you brush its fur regularly so that it does not get matted and keep up with the grooming.

Bearded Collie

The next fluffy pup that we have on our list is the bearded collie. Many people are familiar with the sheepdog the border collie, but this is different. Bearded collies are often referred to as beardies and they are a breed of herding dogs used primarily by Scottish shepherds.

They are a large breed, known for being active and intelligent. If you find your bearded collie displaying bad behavior you should consider extra exercise.

While these dogs may be incredibly active it is important to keep up their grooming because of their long coat. Be sure to brush them off and give them a good wash every couple of weeks.

The Great Pyrenees

The second last dog we have on our list of fluffy pups is the great Pyrenees. With their white fur and long coat, they are often referred to as majestic dogs. Also, a large breed and are often more than 100 pounds.

These dogs are known as mountain dogs, from guarding sheep back in the day but now they make great family pets. Known to be quite stubborn and independent however once you train them appropriately they make for great protectors.

While their coat is not as long as previous dogs mentioned on this list it is still important to keep up with grooming because along with their white fur it can get dirty and matted quite quickly.

Shih Tzu

Last we have the Shih Tzu. Another small breed of dog he’s sole purpose in life is to laugh. These little dogs were bred for companionship hence they are great in both apartments and houses and will always be there for you.

These tiny pups are a ball of energy and need to be taken out and exercised regularly. It is a good idea to have a pair as this will help to burn off their energy. While they may be small, they require a lot of effort when it comes to grooming.

Just as with any other long-haired dog they need to be brushed regularly as well as have regular grooming sessions such as being washed and trimmed to keep their coat happy and healthy.
